Ingredients

  • 24 very thin slices white bread
  • Refrigerated butter-flavored spray
  • 6 to 8 unpeeled garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh parsley sprigs

Directions

Cut each slice of bread with a 2-in. round cookie cutter. Spritz one side of each bread round with butter-flavored spray; press spritzed side up into miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until golden.
Place garlic cloves on a piece of aluminum foil. Pour oil over garlic; fold foil around garlic and seal tightly. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until garlic is very soft. When garlic is cool, remove from skins and mash.
In a bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, chives and salt until smooth. Add garlic; beat until combined. Mound rounded teaspoonfuls of cream cheese mixture into each bread cup. Garnish with parsley. Yield: 12 servings.
